GM Recalls Cadillac SRX and Chevy Captiva Crossovers

2010-2011 Cadillac SRX
The Cadillac SRX is being recalled after General Motors found a possible issue with the transmission. GM investigated the issue following a letter from a customer who experienced "unitended vehicle motion" after shifting his transmission between various gears. SRX crossovers built at GM's Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico and sold in China and the United States are affected.

The Problem: Affected vehicles have a transmission cable that is not properly aligned in the engine compartment. The cable will not shift gears properly causing unintended vehicle motions.

2011-2012 Chevrolet Captiva
GM is recalling a number of Chevy Captivas due to issues with the power steering pump and fluid.

The Problem: The engine will operate at excessive speeds when the transmission is set to manual mode and first gear. Continued driving in this situation will increase steering pump speed. The heat from the pump will transfer to the fluid, which could reach the reservoir's melting point and cause a leak. A fire could result if the leaking fluid ignites.
The Fix: Dealers will install an improved power steering fluid cooler free of charge. The part is expected to arrive in dealers by March 2012. Contact Chevy at 1-800-630-2438 with any questions.
Number of Affected Vehicles: A total of 3,150 model year 2011 to 2012 Chevy Captiva crossovers.
